Kirkcowan – What's Going On?

DG Support – Community Bulletin – Ed 58

We have endured some terrible weather this week and some of our Council staff have been working around the clock to keep you safe and informed, but the signs of spring are there. With the first snowdrops emerging there’s the promise of better days ahead.

The same could hopefully be said for the pandemic, with more than one third of people in our region already receiving the vaccination, and the prospect of restrictions being relaxed, we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Some of our children have returned to school this week, including nursery and Primary 1 to Primary 3 children, along with a phased return for some of our senior pupils. We welcome everyone back into our classrooms, but it’s important to acknowledge the hard work that has gone into ensuring arrangements are safe and sustainable across our school community. We wish them well, teachers and pupils alike, as they return to lessons.

Finally, community testing started this week at locations across D&G for people who have no coronavirus symptoms. This will help stop the spread of the virus by alerting people who were unaware that they had become infected to isolate, and we would encourage everyone to get tested.

Stay Safe, Stay Well…
